They're all mixed up...

By now I've gotten resigned to the fact that it really is fall
That summer really is over
And I'll have to wait 8 or 9 months before I can "Tiptoe Through the Tulips"
Its like jumping into a lake of icy glacier water
Takes your breath away
Until you get used to it.

Because until yesterday we've had uncommonly warm weather
Summer weather,
(And I'm not complaining, but once you have resigned yourself to fall, it might as well come)
These little twin rosebuds got themselves all mixed up.
Their elders are nothing but bulbous rosehips by now
Some are still wearing their pink summer coats,
All wrinkled with age.

The optimism of these little twin rosebuds
Has kind of amazed me!


  1. Love the photos. I love this in-between seasons weather!!

  2. You take some great photos! Honestly.

    Joyce, about the bears? I understand what you mean about the serious nature of the situation. I think that's why I posted it. It's crazy to think that some people only need do things like carry pepper spray or wear bells. The reason I did it was so that people would realize that we don't give things the proper respect the situation often deserves. Thanks for your comment because I'm sure it will help more understand. Have a great weekend!

  3. thanks for welcoming me back....
    okay...the text box choices are in line with all your posting adding a looks just like lines on a paper....where you right or left or center justify your words....

    let me know if that helps :)

  4. I love the change of seasons, but watching these beauties disappear is bittersweet.

  5. He there you what a stunning pics you've taken from these wonderful roses. I'm I can almost smell them over here. We also have the most warm weather for this time of year.Love it. Hugs my friend.

  6. I so love having a bit of summer when it appears to be fall all around! Simply lovely!
